NWA Smoky Mountain News - September 23, 2013
Coming off the heels of an incredible Summer, the stars of NWA Smoky Mountain are ready to make an impact this Fall!
On Saturday, October 12 we will be debuting in Hampton, TN at Hampton High School. The event is a Fundraiser for the Carter County Sports Hall of Fame. The last time we presented a fundraiser for the Hall of Fame was this past April at Elizabethton High School. That event drew over 2,000 fans. We want to make this event even bigger!
4 of the greatest wrestlers to ever come from Carter County will compete in the Main Event. The NWA Tennessee Tag Team Champions, Air America (Skylar Kruze & Gavin Daring) will take on the men who broke them into the sport, "The Cold" Alyx Winters and former ECW & WCW Star, EZ Money... The Illuminati has become obsessed with unseating Air America as champions. Rob Knight has found Alyx Winters the best partner that "Money" can buy to complete the task.
Also on October 12 in Hampton, Jeff Connelly will get his rematch for the NWA Southern TV Title when he takes on Sigmon. Sigmon won the title in controversial fashion on September 14 in Kingsport when, Special Referee, Elliott Russell called for the bell while Sigmon had Connelly in a submission hold. Connelly never tapped and, despite Russell's claims, he never verbally submitted.
To ensure that Russell will not have an impact in the rematch on October 12, NWA Smoky Mountain Commissioner, John Moorehouse has ordered Russell to be handcuffed to "Mad Dog" Daniel Mulligan at ringside. With the odds evened, can Connelly reclaim the title for a Third Time?

Two Men who will not be appearing on October 12 will be Illuminati Members, Chris Richards & Chase Owens. Owens and Richards were suspended from the October 12 TV Taping by Commissioner Moorehouse due to their post match attacked on Jason Kincaid on September 14. In the attack, Owens struck a referee and gave Kincaid a Piledriver onto the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Title Belt!
However, Owens and Richards WILL be at the October 4 event in Rogersville, TN. They had already signed contracts to appear at the event before their suspension... Jason Kincaid is using this opportunity to gain revenge as he will team with "Mad Dog" Daniel Mulligan take take on Richards and Owens in a Tag Team Grudge Match.

Speaking of Jason Kincaid, This past weekend the NWA World Junior Heavyweight Champion competed in Williamsburg, KY for Pro Wrestling Freedom. Jason wrestled one of Kentucky's best in "Picture Perfect" Jordan Kage to a 50 Minute Draw that received a standing ovation from the crowd in attendance.
We have big news about our return to the Kingsport Civic Auditorium on Saturday, November 2!
This event will be entitled "The Morgan Memorial 2013 - The Fight for Zac". Half of the money through the door at ths event will go to the American Cancer Society in the name of Chris Morgan, who passed away from Cancer 4 years ago. The other half of the money will go towards Zac Vincent's medical bills for his upcoming brain surgery. Every dollar from every ticket will be going to a worthy cause!
